Just cooking tea so while I'm at it I'll post my int entry, the video is not my best play score wise, and it's from a while back so I'll play it again, it is a bit better of any other attempts sound-wise, it has mucho dorky behaviour too but nothing unusual there :) https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=A594LSEemE4

I have some criticisms of some of these customs. Not sure if any of them except the tuning issue on Ohio are fatal, but here goes.

 

Love in an Elevator:

Bass is not great. The sustained D played over the G chord in the second part of the verse sounds off. Might be the higher G that's supposed to go there? Riff under the pull-offy guitar riff around the second solo is also way off - you can hear the bass playing other stuff under that.

 

Also, on guitar the slides suck.

 

Ohio:

On lead, the sync of the first lead part (third and fourth sections, after the intro) is way off. Might be the notes aren't in the right places rather than a sync issue. Later leads seemed fine from what I could tell.

 

On rhythm, some of the chords don't have handshapes. I noticed this with the A#6/A chord or whatever it was, as I paused to check the fingering once the initial chord pane went away and I was left with just repeat panes with no handshape.

 

Lastly, the intro part is the same on both lead and rhythm, despite the fact that they have different tunings and notes on the relevant strings. Is rhythm also supposed to be in double drop D? I probably should be able to answer this with my ears, but it's probably better someone like @ tests it out, both with better playing and better ears.

Adv bass score: Technically it's my 1st playthrough, though it read 2nd, the first playthrough I got 3 red kisses as I was positioned over the wrong frets after a 30 minute session with the riff in LAS... I need to get my dexterity and speed up for the riff but I made no mistakes until the end there around the bendy 10th fret http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=574356231I'll work a bit more on this, reminds me of Saturday morning after watching Going Live I'd watch the Chart Show and that's where I met Aerosmith :)

@@franfit you're welcome, I love counting crows. I cringe at their lyrics as they mostly sound like they had a tune with a hook and got the lead singer who was good at ad-libbing hooky lyrics while drunk :) it's what makes them.good though :D

I haven't gotten the hang of the rhythm patters on bass for either of these yet, but I've made a start.

Mr. Jones ~= 97% (fixed link)

Ohio ~= 97%

@@2groggy Your's Mr. Jones link shows your bass instead of score (though that could have been intentional).

 

@@albatross213 Lack of handshapes is just cosmetic. Slides I'd noticed too.

 

Big thing - you need to remember that you are responsible for what you've put in SSL. It will be rare when we'll decide to not select particular song (i.e. no RR or visible bars disqualifies song; too long  - when song is longer then 8 minutes we need to be convinced to select it [great tune, beloved band, etc.] lower tunings are not helping in that case).

If a person get's 100 % for a couple weeks do they automatically move up to the next class? Seems unfair for improving players to have someone sitting at 100% every week in there class... just an observation. I'm not complaining just suggesting,  Love what you guys are doing for the Rocksmith community!!

Purely accidental, and fixed, thanks. I played those tracks on the full scale bass because I was tinkering with the bridge

Bass players level up to the next class if their score is 99.5 or higher, but if it's an easy song even for it's class we can decide to stay in the same class. If a guitar player have 97.5% or higher 3 weeks in a row he/she also will be levelled up, but everyone can play every song where only it's actual class counts. At the Leaderboard players with a small and lighter writing  and/or a star behind the name doesnt belong to this class.

I've been getting 100% regularly and not moving up a class due to the fact the songs for those weeks are usually decided to be a lot easier than advanced class. It wouldn't be fair to move folk up a class when the song they've accomplished the 100% in wasn't of that class' level. It's not an improvement that causes those 100%'s it's a lack of true advanced songs. I've found a few advanced class songs that are what I believe to be true advance class but unfortunately certain things about the charts ie: no RR or they're bass only, which can't be entered in to the SSL.
